Tom Brady has an NFL trophy case that is hard to compete with.
His seven Super Bowls and five Super Bowl MVPs tell the tale, and the list goes on and on.
Winning a Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the 2020 season proved he could take his talents anywhere and succeed.
But he just recently accomplished a feat that had not been seen in Tampa Bay for well over a decade.
That is winning the NFC South division.
Brady and the Buccaneers easily handled the Carolina Panthers in Week 16 to take home the division for the first time since 2007.
For the legendary quarterback, it is his 18th career division title after winning a mind-blowing 17 with the New England Patriots.

The fact he won a Super Bowl in Tampa Bay before winning a division title is a surprising story of its own.
Getting Back On Top
The Buccaneers last won the NFC South in 2007 with a 9-7 record, only to promptly fall to the New York Giants in the Wild Card playoffs.
Since then, the Panthers, Atlanta Falcons, and New Orleans Saints have all taken turns wearing the NFC South crown.
The Saints had won four straight before the Buccaneers took it home in 2021.
Quarterbacks and NFC South Champs. Great team achievement from the top down. Also.. everyone please note, QB room is tallest, best looking, and probably the funniest too. pic.twitter.com/uVeLncXjlu

New Orleans seemed to be the favorite again early in the year after taking down Brady and the Bucs and improving to 5-2.
But a Jameis Winston season-ending injury halted their progress and they sit at 7-7 heading into Monday night.
A division title used to be an expectation for Brady in New England.
The same will now be true in Tampa Bay for as long as he sticks around now that Drew Brees is no longer guiding the Saints.
Brady is once again the alpha at quarterback in his division, even at the age of 44.
